This is the original story that the later series of much-loved Boxcar Children books was based on. Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny Alden are brothers and sisters who become orphans. Rather than be sent to their grandfather, whom they were raised to believe is an awful man, they decide to run away. One night, during a storm, the children take refuge in an old abandoned boxcar, and decide to make it their home. Meanwhile, their grandfather tries to track them down.
